The Broad & Co.
Art is everywhere. On our phones and on TV into our eyes. Vibrating through our headphones and into our brains. We create it with clay and trash. We wear it on our face and on our clothes. We live in a very artistic time on the planet and I, for one, could not be happier.
Viewing art all day in the palm of your hand is EPIC but you must - Go. See. Art.
For my 25th birthday all i wanted to do was go see art. So my boyfriend and I mini road tripped to Los Angeles to The Broad.
The Broad museum is located on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles. It is home to 2000 works of contemporary art by 200 artists from the 1950's to present. And guess what? It is FREE. Thanks to philanthropist founders Eli and Edythe Broad.
Because it is new and extra popular you have to reserve your free tickets in advance. Various parking spots within the same block make this spot extra awesome.
It is also known for the Infinity Room. An installment by Yayoi Kusama.
I am heart broken that i didnt get to experience this one because of long wait time that overlapped our dinner reservations! But we did get to wander the rest of the museum which has more than enough art that makes you feel all types of ways. Booking our free tickets 4 months ago was definitely worth it.

Want more Live & FREE Art?
Google your local art galleries/museums or live performances and GO! Even if you think you "don't know anything about art". You don't have to be educated about art. Art is meant to make you think, no matter what your opinion is.
